Thinking about a Bryant Furnace? How long will it take to recover the money I spend on a new furnace? This is a common question asked by homeowners when they are shopping to replace an older furnace. There are several things that factor into the equation, but overall, the advances in technology make this the best time ever for purchasing energy efficient furnaces.
When you are in the market for new heating equipment, there are basics to consider, such as your budget, how much you feel comfortable spending on monthly heating bills, and what size system will adequately heat the space inside your home.
Furnace Efficiency Rating
Understanding the meaning of furnace efficiency rating with help you make an educated buying decision. The AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) is the comparison between the amount of energy required to produce the heat, with how much heat it actually provides. For example, if your furnace has an AFUE rating of 80%, it means that 20% of the energy used is not converted to heat.
This gives you an idea of how much energy will be used to heat your home, and from that you can calculate the cost. The higher the AFUE rating, the less energy is used, since less is being lost.
